And every year its not always "scrubs" that they lose. I believe last year they couldn't retain Fred Smoot and Antonio Pierce. Starters, neither of which were scrubs, nor old. The year before that they had to cut Trotter, who had been excellent for them in his two years at Washington. The real question is, who will the impact players they lose this year be?


Pierce and Smoot were UFAs. We weren't going to shell out the doe when we had Marshall and Rogers to plug in.....a sign that Snyder has finally stopped his ways. If the old CBA isn't renewed by March 1, then there will be NO CAP.

Restructure a few, Lavar Arrington (who WILL be restructured, I can almost guarantee it), Chris Samuels, and possibly Brunell.

Trade ramsey, and we should be fine.

Cash creates cap, Danny Boy knows how to get it done. They say the same stuff about us every year, and they will be proven wrong yet again.


only problem with that strategy is that you have to pay guys to replace the guys you cut and/or trade for. trading for future draft picks with ramsey is a good possibility. looking at that list, the skins are nowhere near the worst off. how could oakland be in such bad cap shape with the way their team played???

I thought the 'No Cap' wouldn't, take effect till 2007.


And the big peice to this puzzle is the article stating the Skins can't just cut guys. If they do that then alot of the guys will count MORE towards the Cap. Depending on who these guys are then this might be a much bigger problem then it has in the past.
So they weren't the best...and may have ended the worst. SO WHAT!

Yes, and you can't just say "the Redskins have this problem every year and always find a way out of it." Because in the past, they have pushed the cap hit into future years. Like the article says, eventually that will catch up to you, and that time is now.
